ACO - FIND YOUR STRONG!!!
I just want to put some words out there for those of you that are stepping out of your comfort zone and competing at ACO this weekend. I ran across a pretty awesome video and it made me think about our box and the athletes I get to work with. I have been around this box for a while now and have been fortunate enough to witness some amazing transformations. It is humbling to watch all of you train so hard to prepare for competition.xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /
FIND YOUR STRONG!!! In a recent email conversation between the folks that ran the White Rock Marathon, one of our athletes said that her motivation was Cat, Marla, and Gale’s voice telling her “You are strong and you can do this; see you at the finish.” That was Courtney’s “Strong” for the grueling last quarter of the race. AWESOME!!! FIND YOUR STRONG! Does it help you to chant something, or to think about someone or something? Then do it, whatever it is that motivates you to succeed.
To our lady lionesses competing: You guys are gonna kick butt! I have seen all of you doing all the necessary things to get into fight shape! Remember, you guys are STRONG, and not just physically… you guys have the innate ability to lose yourself in the moment and push that much harder… I expect big things! You will do GREAT!!
To the fellas: It’s time! GET AFTER IT!!! Nuff Said!
JUST A FRIENDLY FYI- We love CrossFit, and everything that goes with it… BUT, please, please, please remember that this is an amateur event… HQ has not started hosting qualifier competitions for the 2012 Games… Have fun, but be smart. Push hard, try to win, but BE SMART.
Good Luck to all and I look forward to cheering you guys on!

If you have never witnessed the team in action, it is one of the most uplifting and proud moments you will have as a STRONG fam-uh-lee member!

PaShunD 12/07/2011 15:05:42Better yet Gale, walk up them and yell "DIRTY TURKEY STONG!" lol
CoachYocom 12/07/2011 12:43:07yes. just walk up to a random person and scream STRONG!!!! then walk away. that would be awesome!!!!
AndyL 12/07/2011 12:29:51I`ll second this blog. And, for those of you who don`t know, Crossfit Strong brings with them one of the loudest cheering sections to competitions. ACO is this Saturday in Dallas. If you can be there, please be there wearing your Strong stuff and yelling "Strong!" at random people all day. It`s a great way to meet some people from the box who aren`t in your class and see some great Strong athletes find their Strong against other boxes.
